A temporary restraining order was granted for Denver Broncos star Von Miller this afternoon in his attempt to block a woman from releasing their sex tape shot in Cancun.
The woman is reportedly demanding $2.5 million from the linebacker to keep the tape from being unleashed, according to TMZ.
Miller filed legal docs in L.A. County Superior Court under the pseudonym “Doe” — but multiple sources confirm “Doe” is Miller, TMZ reported. He’s described in the legal docs as “one of the most talented people at his craft in the U.S. and the world.”
In the filing, Miller describes meeting the woman named Elizabeth Ruiz during a June 2016 trip to Mexico and having sex with her while they were alone indoors. Miller says the woman recorded the sex on her cell phone — but he insisted at all times she keep it private. He claims he reached out to her after the trip and asked her to destroy the recording to which she replied, “Gotcha.”
Miller claims the woman tried to sell the video to TMZ, but the website turned her down. The woman then assembled a team and tried to sell the video back to Miller for $2.5 million, he claims in the docs. Miller’s people also shot down the request and accused the woman of attempted extortion.
